Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been coming to Maui for over 30 years, sometimes 2-4 times per year, and have stayed at all the different resorts from Wailea to Kapalua. I stumled across this property a few years ago, and now make spend my valuable vacation time at this property. The Direct Oceanfront View perspective is just Incredible and the Value for a 1 Bedroom place with a full kitchen washer and dryer makes this a very comfortable place to stay. Well worth the money.

Great Value for the Price

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Royal Kahana in John's condo was great. John was kind and responded in a timely manner to all our questions. The building itself is a little dated, but that doesn't really matter when this condo has been renovated so nicely. The balcony is only 15-20 feet from the ocean. Unfortunately the beach that was once there has eroded away, but Kaanapali beach is only a 5 minute drive away which we were pleased to be so close to.

Plenty of towels provided; both beach and bath. The bathroom felt very clean. The kitchen could use a little more supplies (barbecue equipment in particular) if your family is planning on cooking , but definitely enough to get by. No cooler provided but you can buy a disposable one across the street. The beds we used were both very comfortable as well as the pillows. We loved having the beach equipment in the condo: beach chairs, snorkel gear (two sets), umbrella, boogie boards, etc. Some gear needs to be replaced as it seems past renters were pretty harsh on it (pair of flippers broken, one of the beach chairs ripped apart, etc.). BEWARE OF THE YELLOW BOOGIE BOARD WITH BLACK DESIGN!! I used this board and once I was done I realized my entire torso was completely black from the ink rubbing off; thankfully came off with soap and water but not without a lot of scrubbing! There was also a pair of binoculars by the TV but they were broken. Don't know if they can be repaired but if you can fix them, we think you could do some whale watching off the balcony.

One thing that does need to be fixed in my opinion is the sealing with the front door, sliding door, and a couple windows. It was windy while we were there (pretty typical in Maui) but the shape of the building funnels the wind through the hallways to the rooms, and the seals aren't tight on the doors and this created a very irksome, high-pitch, whistling noise when the doors were closed, similar to the sound a teapot makes when the water is boiling (loud enough to keep you up at night). Sound came specifically from underneath at the bottom of the front door and the entire crack when the sliding door is closed and some windows. We had to always have the sliding door cracked and put pillows at the bottom of the front door to seal it and stop the noise. Since we weren't at the condo much is wasn't that big a deal but had we been relaxing more at the condo, it would be enough to bring our stay down a star.

Overall great value and quality with an ocean front view.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo and had a fabulous week. It was so nice to be able to sit on the lanai and watch and listen to the waves coming in. We would turn off the ac st night and listen to the waves while falling asleep. The condo is set up perfectly! We cooked at the condo daily and were able to do laundry. It is only a short drive to Kaanapali or Lahaina where you can do lots of shopping and find restaurants. The only downside to this condo was the pool. Unfortunately they are working on the beach and seawall so the pool area had construction equipment and noise. We would still definitely stay here again!

Construction in Paradise

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I were searching for a beachfront resort type of condo to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. After doing some research, this seemed to be the best deal.

I'll start with the positives. John was very prompt and thorough in his correspondence. The unit was spacious and had an amazing view of the ocean when we woke up on Sun. morning. John provided helpful information regarding nearby grocery stores and restaurants. We also utilized the boogie boards, beach chairs and towels provided. The room was clean, updated, and had everything we needed. I appreciated the entertainment setup with the TV /apple TV.

The facility/resort itself was very dated, but as I mentioned this unit was updated very nicely. As others have mentioned in reviews, the beach was washed away (which I unfortunately didn't learn until I read a review after the time I booked). The description states the resort has a beach, which it no longer has.

There has been ongoing construction around the resort for a few months due to the damage that has been done to the beach side. Just our luck, the week we stayed construction started directly in front of this unit from Mon - Fri from 8:00am to 4:00pm. I'm talking loud jack hammers and heavy construction equipment directly outside the unit. This was the new view we had for the rest of our trip. I understand construction occurs, but once my husband and I learned this was ongoing for a few months from some of the other owners at the resort, we were disappointed that this was not disclosed up front as we would have chosen a different option. We only had 4 full days to enjoy this unit and unfortunately 3 out of 4 were spent listening to a front end loader outside.

After we learned about the construction, we contacted the owner immediately to see if we could receive some sort of discount since there is no way we would have chosen this unit had we known about the construction. I learned the only way to get a discount would be to sign an agreement stating we would not post a "negative" review on any website. I chose honesty over obtaining a discount as I wish I would have known about the heavy construction occurring right outside our lanai. This type of tactic completely undermines the honesty and integrity of travel sites like VRBO. People depend on open, honest, and trustworthy information from both the owners and the customers who stay and post reviews. I hope this review helps others make an informed decision.

Blown away!

  • 5 of 5

John has outdone himself with this remodel! We searched endlessly through every listing we could find online in West Maui and this by far had the most amount of items on our wish list. Beachfront view, AC, upgraded interior, and of course a very fair price. The building is very large but still feels comfortable and is very clean throughout the property. We noticed there were landscapers outside everyday maintaining the grounds, which really showed. The condo was a great mix of high end upgrades while still feeling comfortable. The hardwood floors were a great choice considering the sand you track in coming from the beach. There were many food choices nearby, some within walking distance. The biggest benefit was the location. There were beach parks nearby but we felt the beach to the left of the property was the best choice for us, there are also giant sea turtles by the rocky parts everyday. This was quite an experience and knowing we could walk 5 minutes down the beach to see these beautiful creatures was more than we could ask for. All in all, the location, the condo itself and the shopping/food options within a mile or two made this an unforgettable experience! John was great to work with and we really appreciated his kindness and quick response time to any questions we had leading up to the trip as well as while we were there. We will definitely come back to John's condo on our next trip to Maui!

Awesome Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent 10 days at the Royal Kahana. The condo building itself is an older looking building but the lobby is decorated nicely and the staff very friendly. John's unit is spectacular! Completely remodeled last year, it has everything you might need. This was our 5th vacation to Maui and by far the best ocean view we've ever had. We spent a lot of time sitting out on the Lanai just soaking in the beauty of the water. There is not much of a beach here but you're in Maui! There are great beaces everywhere! We took advantage of The unit's snorkeling gear and beach chairs which saved us money on having to rent them. The AC and ceiling fans worked great despite what a previous reviewer stated. All in all it was a great, relaxing vacation and we would definitely stay here again!!
